I hope the nay-sayers die first

I'm sure I will, as will you, your children, your grandchildren, your great-grandchildren, their great-grandchildren, and a thousand more generations before man-made global warming kills a single sewer rat.

Can't say I want to see the whole thing if this just a taste of it. I dabble in film and I would of left one camera full frame on everything, and used a second to catch the more detailed close ups. Also, I wouldn't be so whorish as to have to include myself pretending to be talking on a phone to someone. Yes, those shots are almost always faked, no one actually films everything that goes on.

Ironically, many of our EPA protocols and green tech. fuel the pollution by forcing business, money, and pollution output to places like China and India where we fund murderers with no EPA standards.
Few realize that windmills, hybrids, and solar panels all require rare resources from China. They are mined by spraying the clay with huge amounts liquid sulphuric acid that runs off downstream into farmlands and the ocean. The metals are then purified at refineries requiring their own power plants. Companies then buy up the metals make a hybrid, even when the production of the car results in more pollution than the gas-engine it's replacing

This is the Ilulissat Glacier formerly known as the Jakobshavn Glacier. It annually calves off 35 billion tonnes of ice each year and is responsible for 10% of all Greenland's icebergs. These events are so large that they have been known to produce earth quakes as the ice scrapes against the bottom. The large break up is due to perturbation of buoyant ice being effected by the tidal changes and is known as the "Jakobshavn effect".
The ice has been less as supported by ice core data and bowhead whale remains.
Yet in this case there may be some man made influence. It is not from CO2 emissions or global warming as commonly claimed but from Asiatic black soot that coats the area and is then concentrated by flowing water, trapping heat, and creating weak points called Cryoconite holes.

Y'know with all the technology that's being used there, satellite phones, time lapse photography, then why does it look like it's been shot on a mobile phone?

Man made climate change is definitely a thing.. People against that haven't looked at and/or understood the facts, either out of stupidity, or because of some rigid ideology (which is also stupid!).

That being said, we're completely f*cked either way.. I don't bother doing anything about it..

Warming and cooling have been happening on the planet since.... oh.. since day 1! But hey, you go enjoy your eco-nut hard-on from this. Who am I too judge.

I fully expected to see Bruce Willis, (or similar), emerging from the conning tower of a sub, having just saved the world. Fantasy sometimes blurs with reality when you watch too many movies!

Cows, volcano's, methane blow holes deep in the sea,etc... make human waste minimal in comparison, this dont drive your car so much pooe, while Governments tank out battleships to the other side of the world chugging half a mile a gallon of diesel or whatever they feed on kinda makes crap on the eco directive

Also.....

This is all sea ice. This will not raise sea levels.

Sea ice melting, is like ice melting in a glass of water. The level won't rise, but the ice will vanish.

This has absolutely nothing to do with "climate change." Glaciers flow to the sea and break up into icebergs. That's just what they do. It happens during both warm and cold periods, and it's been going on for billions of years. If you believe incandescent light bubs and SUVs caused this, you're a gullible f***tard.

nature bitches!
yes, climate change is real, how much we humans have to do with it is questionable, but we do have influence on it.
We are living in an ice age (ice age being defined by "there is natural ice"). Big parts of the history of the earth were completely ice-less and yet, earth has always recovered. Maybe it's just a natural cycle, not caused by humans, but expedited.

Humanity has got to get its poo together. I'm doing my part bit by bit. I wish I knew more about fuel though..Not driving and raising awareness just doesn't seem to do much :/
